The Travelling Trowel...

The Travelling Trowel is a long-standing tradition of the 54th District designed to encourage attendance at Official Visits. Points are awarded based on number of attendees (Lodge Officers and newly raised Masons receiving extra points) and the Lodge with the largest total holds the Trowel until the next visit. The lodge with the largest cumulative total at the end of the Visitation schedule is permitted to hold and display this coveted trophy until the next Masonic year.
